Yesterday we broke news that a new mystery phone named the Vivo Xplay would be launching as soon as April. Initial rumours suggested this would be a MTK powered phone, but upon further digging a more impressive specification has been discovered!
As we mentioned yesterday the new Vivo Xplay, possibly a working title for the Vivo X5, will be a 5-inch 1080 HD display, however that’s about as far as yesterdays rumours got before being completely wrong.
Gizchina News of the week
Rather than a quad-core MT6589 CPU, it is now expected to launch with a newer and much more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor! This along with 2GB RAM, 32GB of built-in memory, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and hi quality audio chip make the Vivo Xplay a much more attractive prospect!
Pricing is still expected to be higher than most Chinese phones at 3699 Yuan ($594), but at least we can see where the extra money is being spent in the Xplay i.e the newer processor and Cirrus Logic audio technology!
